Haha, that's actually a really interesting find. I am torn between being horrified, and wanting to track down copies of these books for posterity.

Before we know it Chevy will be listed as manufacturing the Enterprise... and Ford got the shuttle contract... which would explain a lot of the accidents.

Klingon: NOT COOL!
